I was struggling to decide on a book to use for this week’s teaser so adopted the complex selection process known as picking up the one closest to me which just happened to be Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey. I haven’t had a chance to dive into this one yet but I do love the sound of it and I loved Carey’s other books The Girl with all the Gifts and The Boy on the Bridge so I have high hopes.
Fran simply wasn’t ready for a change on this massive scale. With a yelp of dismay, she sank down on her knees among the weeds that were there to the touch although she couldn’t see them anymore.
Pg 153 Someone Like Me by M.R. Carey
SHE LOOKS LIKE ME. SHE SOUNDS LIKE ME. NOW SHE’S TRYING TO TAKE MY PLACE.
Liz Kendall wouldn’t hurt a fly. She’s a gentle woman devoted to bringing up her kids in the right way, no matter how hard times get.
But there’s another side to Liz—one which is dark and malicious. A version of her who will do anything to get her way, no matter how extreme or violent.
And when this other side of her takes control, the consequences are devastating.
The only way Liz can save herself and her family is if she can find out where this new alter-ego has come from, and how she can stop it.
